School Menus--A New Approach!

Looking for our 2018-19 school menus? The search is over.

CRCSD Families, we are excited to announce a new way to access school menus: Nutrislice.

Nutrislice puts our menus in the palm of your hand. With Nutrislice, we are empowering you. Our students and families can now access our school menu options via the web or mobile app which offers powerful features to proactively engage in a personalized approach to your child’s nutritional experience:

  • View our menus in over 50 languages.
  • Access nutrition information—including carbohydrate values—to make decisions as a family that are aligned with a child’s dietary needs and preferences.
  • Access photos, descriptions, and allergen information of menu items.
  • Increase your awareness of menu options and make informed decisions with your child.

What else can you expect?

  • Filtering and highlighting capabilities for allergens and specific ingredients
  • Identification of USDA’s MyPlate components for building a balanced meal
  • An option to provide feedback and rate menu items
  • Push notifications to customers (for instance, if an altered school day impacts breakfast or lunch service) *must choose schools as “favorites” to receive these school-specific notifications

All you need to do:

  • Download our free mobile app (search for “Nutrislice”)
  • Access online menus and information at

We are just getting started. Be sure to check often as we build upon features of Nutrislice.

Thank you,
Cedar Rapids Community School District

Greetings, all!

Please join us for our first PTA Meeting of the 2018-2019 school year next Monday, September 10. A meal will be served in the cafeteria at 5:30, and our meeting will start at 6pm. FREE childcare will be provided!

Our first order of business will be a special election. Unfortunately, circumstances beyond her control have made it necessary for April, our PTA President, to step down from her position. If you are interested in running for this position or would like to nominate some one, or if you might be interested in serving in a different capacity on the executive committee, please let us know that as well.

Other topics for this meeting will include:

*JSA PTA Basics

*Harvest Hoopla

*Fall Fundraiser

*Wendy's Nights
